Dia Mirza is determined to change that   on International day for Street Children, Save the Children Ambassador Dia Mirza promises to fight for each of their dreams and has a message for all the special kids. 
 
 
Actor Dia Mirza says, “I will fight till each one of you have your rights. I think the world needs to wake up to how incredible each one of you is and to how much talent you have. You can shine if given the opportunity. With Save The Children, we are going to make sure you have the right to education, the right to health care and the right to opportunity. I promise to make each one of the invisible, visible”
